Wolves are reportedly in talks with Southampton over a possible deal for Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina, according to a report published by The Daily Mail.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side reportedly want close to the £15.4 million which they paid to recruit the player from Juventus in order to part ways with him.

The 25-year-old reporter Wolves target joined the Saints from Juventus during the summer of 2017 and he has since gone on to make 46 Premier League appearances for them, scoring two goals.

The Gabon international is a hard-working and dynamic right-footed midfielder who is regarded as one of the best Premier League players from outside the so-called top six clubs.

He was also linked with a potential move to Manchester United this summer.

Wolves target Lemina, who is team-mates with Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at international level, started his professional career with Lorient in France in 2012 and also had stints with the likes of Marseille and Juventus.

He previously turned out for France at U-20 and U-21 level before deciding to represent Gabon at senior international level.

Wolves are aiming to make an impact in the Europa League this season.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side was one of the surprise packages of last season as they managed to gain qualification to the Europa League in spite of having only been promoted from the Championship during the previous season.

Signing a player such as Lemina would be a step in the right direction for the Molineux club.

Wolves must go all out to secure this deal before the transfer window slams shut.
